Location: Powelton between 35th & 36th
Date visited: 11/14/10
Equipment: Two playsets:
- Smaller has various types of climbing, two plastic slides (one short and straight, one taller and spiral), and a store window playspace underneath.
- Larger has two tall plastic slides (one straight with moguls and one curved and irregular), monkey bars of varying height, hanging bars, and a steep climbing wall.
Surface: rubbery around equipment; woodchips elsehwere
Other: blacktop area with lots of painted games, maps, etc.; picnic tables
Impressions: Nicely designed newish playground offers fun for a range of ages in a compact space. The open blacktop and picnic tables make this a nice place for an extended visit, and an adjacent playspace across 35th fills in with more choices and a couple of bucket swings (the key absence here). Nice for a fall afternoon in West Philly.
Overall rating: 8
